That's an unusual place for Jesus. Tell us more about this location.

The year engraved on the base reads 1908. The pylon could be like 1960's. Not sure about the bench. It may be older than power lines but looks repaired like during the last 20 years.
You can see this place from the road (it's just beyond the right rim of the picture).

This could be transformed into a poignant black and white. The color renders is postcard-ish.

This isn't a classic landscape shot but a landscape with a pun ("and some energy"). That's why the colour style.
Here's a B&W conversion - used a medium strong orange filter. Not sure about the results.

I inderstand the pun, and itís a good one. I would further darken the b&w version, then selectively lighten the bench, cross, and pylons.

I like the color version, but a splash of red might improve the picture.
Maybe a red parrot on the bench or a can of Coca Cola in the lower right patch of the grass. Or a pioneer scarf.

Could you give an example?

Personally, I prefer the color version, as the yellow rapeseed seems to nicely complement the blue in the sky and contribute to the "narrative" or pun. I'd try to better separate the yellow color from the greens, plus a slightly more consistent blue sky would be nice. I'd consider removing the meandering contrail. The aeroplane with the straight trail is a good contributor though.

Good mix of different elements. I prefer the colour version, as it conveys  "joy" rather than "doom".
